I stumbled upon this post on LinkedIn by Thomas Winandy, who by his title is Head of Mobile Banking Apps at Commerzbank. He announced a new version for its mobile banking app. Commerzbank is one of the biggest banks in Germany, so I was excited to see what they will have to offer. Especially because they supposedly worked on this new version for about 2 years.
So what are the big new features? What does the future of mobile banking look like? Unfortunately, I still don’t know. This brand new app is so boring and has nothing new to offer besides the rare minimum of features we all have got used to from other banking apps.
But hey, the app is now also available in English. What a major achievement. Bravo, Commerzbank. 🎉
No wonder private customers are leaving in masses and the B2C branch of the bank is highly unprofitable. When you spend two years working on an app and even establish an in-house agency tasked with the development, and all you got was this lousy app… you have fundamental problems.
